Getting belly button repierced

Ok I had my bellybutton pierced and I took it out when I was about 20 weeks pregnant. Now it looks like I have 2 belly buttons. :S I think I'm going to get it repierced so it at least looks normal again. Anyone done this and happy with decision? I have just been hearing alot of scary stories about it. Thanks!

  • I had mine re pierced and I don't really regret it or think great of it. I have had it out for over 8 years now though. When they did it the second time it really hurt because there was a lot of scar tissue they had to go through. So with that in mind, there is no way I'm going to get it pierced again. LOL

  • Scary like what?

    Just get it redone and treat it the way you would or did the first time.
    It will b just fine I did it and it came out just fine.

  • Ive had mine done 3 times, the first time i had it done it got ripped out at cheerleading practice when we were doing stunts, then i got it repierced and took it out when i got pregant, and then again after i had my DD, I didnt know they made maternity bellybutton rings but i wish i had of.
    The only thing is that it hurts more each time you have it done because of the scar tissue, the 1st time I didnt even feel it but the 2nd and 3rd time I almost passed out. lol

  • I would never re-pierce mine.

    It hurt too much the first time.

  • I have just heard that with the scar tissue in there, it makes re-piercing it more dangerous. I'm prolly gunna do it anyways. I didn't feel it the first time..just the clamp, so I guess I'll just prepare for more pain this time. :o
